The reason GrowMap exists is to share with my readers and anyone involved with small businesses or blogs who finds their way here what really works. The Internet and indeed even the offline world is filled with con artists selling lies.

Get-rich-quick peddlers who are
polished and convincing
lead far too many down
the garden paths to failure.

People truly do not know who to trust or what to believe. For going on five years now, I have shared with those who care to read it what I have learned over four decades.


That includes not just what I personally learned during 23 years at IBM, 5.5 years managing AdWords accounts for dozens of small businesses, but also what the most brilliant specialists I know have to share.

The fast path to learning is to identify the top experts on any topic you want to learn, read everything you can find that they have shared, and then contact them directly to discuss what they have taught you.

What this means to you is that I know who the best |
in the world are at specific skills YOU need.


There is so much to know – and the more you know specific to your goals and business the more successful you will be.

  1. First you need to know what questions to ask – and that only comes from trying to apply what you’ve learned.
  2. Then you have to know where to look for the answers – and whose answers to trust.

That is where I can help. If you have read what I write for any length of time you know I only rarely recommend anything you could buy – even if you wanted to buy something.

I have focused on sharing what works and primarily what a small business owner or manager – which includes a blog – can do with very little cash needed.

What Do YOU Most Need or Want to Know?

What you need – almost anything you want to know – is available online, but you have to know where to look and who can be trusted. Even if you know that, there are now years of posts, pages and decades of sites online.

Here’s your chance. I recently transitioned how I cover my overhead to free up more time for my own projects. I am working with two business owners focusing on specific goals that will benefit all of us (because I will learn as much from them as they will from me).

While I dig into what they need done I will be working on finally learning how to effectively use email marketing and autoresponders. As targeted traffic from Google becomes harder to consistently get, those are the skills we all most need.

During this time, the best thing I can do for you here on GrowMap (besides sharing with you what I learn) is to answer your questions.

Instead of you spending hours or days researching – just ask me.

I have almost five years worth of posts that answer almost every question you can come up with PLUS I know hundreds of people who are experts in topics I don’t personally work on – like Facebook, or conversion optimization and testing.


Here’s my offer to you. You can ask anything you want to know in the comments below. If there is a quick answer – a post or three for example, I will answer in the comments.

If your question is more involved, and you would like to you and your blog to be featured in a blog post where I provide a more complex response – complete with links and specifics – you can get increased visibility and links valuable for SEO.

Only what you are comfortable having published online will be included. If you have details you do not want published, you can request a private meeting on Skype or via phone or email.


Sadly, I know that most reading this will not actually take advantage of what I am offering. Many have been conditioned to avoid publicity for their business or will not realize the value of what I am offering to them.

Others object whenever an ethical small business shares the products and services they have to offer us – all the while actually paying to be a billboard for a corporate brand.

YOU can be the exception. Take the risk – ask what you want to know. Let me share resources and experts with you to take your business or blog to the next level.

Just go for it. There is no time like now.

Leave your questions below in the comments.
And do tell your friends and favorite small businesses.
